Military Science: Research Help

Welcome to the Research Guide in Military Science

This guide is a jump-start on library research in military science and history by giving an overview of what material is available in and through the library, along with some quick tips on how to find and use them.

Basic Resources (Military Sci)


Sherratt Library provides access to journal and magazine databases on a wide range of subjects. Below is a list of databases with content related to military service, history, leadership, and psychology:

Journals and Periodicals

Although many of the journals we have in Sherratt Library are available in electronic form, there are times when a print copy is the way to go (print copies of journals are on the first floor of Sherratt Library, organized alphabetically by title.)

Books and Ebooks

Depending on your branch of service and specialty you'll use material across any library collection. Sometimes wandering the shelves is useful. If you can find one book on a topic, others like it will be sitting close by on the same shelf.  Be sure to look at both the Reference collection on the first floor for general helps like encyclopedias, and at the circulating collection on the second floor for books you can take with you.

Class H   Social sciences

HD 57+  Leadership theory
